    • Render safe border (smooth shadows)

      In BoxShot 3D there is a really nice feature that ensures shadows to be faded by the borders of the canvas.

      Cannot find this feature in boxshot 4.. Now I have to use photoshop afterwards to "fade" out shadows manually..

      Any chance this feature may be added?

          • I would really love a better lighting system, or different lights like spot lights added in version 5.

            Better lighting, different lamp styles and the possibilty to change the light colour.

                • Opening books

                  I want to see a Boxshot update so that books can be partially open (you used to be able to do this in the previous version of Boxshot), idealy the angle should be controllable.

                  If you wanted to get extra brownie points from designers like me, then being able to add in detail to the pages (using JPG/PDF files from the actual pages in the book you're designing) would be great.

                  • clipping

                    Adding a vector path (clipping path) around the outside of the object when rendered would be amazing.

                    • watermark

                      I use Boxshot to make this things: http://i.imgur.com/fUDPb74.png

                      So, in some cases I need to put watermark, to prevent my work, like this: http://www.watermarkfactory.com/resources/samples/watermark-factory-sample-10.jpg

                      My idea is that the user could put a simple text or an image.

                      I think this is a good idea and some users will need this feature. Can you implement this in boxshot? :)

                      • Rendering quality settings

                        It would be good if we have more control over rendering quality settings.
                        Something between draft and high quality.
                        I render a lot of simple projects like business cards, flyers, etc.
                        I will gladly trade some quality for rendering speed in this simple tasks.

                            • Adjust Camera(s) Just Like an Object

                              What would be AMAZINGLY helpful if the "Snapshots" are saved as individual cameras. When you create a new snapshot it creates a new camera. Once you move away from the position you see a ghosted camera that you could manually control (position and rotation). Once you've made your adjustments, you can double click on the snap shot and that view is updated. If you want to have multiple snapshots, you'll see multiple ghosted cameras in your skybox.

                                    • Make a few fixes to the shadow rendering output on transparent background

                                      A few issues here:

                                      If you render an image with ambient lighting and a background image, the multiplication of the lighting gets applied to the floor on top of the background image. This seems strange to me.

                                      However, if you remove the background image in order to just render the object with transparent drop shadows, the shadows on the floor disappear, and any ambient lighting settings appear as png haze.

                                      What is strange, is that skylight effect shading still works - just not shadows cast from light objects. In other words, I was trying a test comp with this NASA…

                                        • Multiple Scene support for Jobs

                                          I like to create a render queue with Jobs (to render multiple resolutions and scripts to choose texture and snapshot) from multiple scenes in my relative folder. So i can change the textures and click the Job File and Boxshot give me an rendered output of all my scenes in a folder.
